'A Royal Night Out' (Ferring Village Hall)

Ferring Film Society’s showing on Friday 8th May, the 75th anniversary of VE Day, is ‘A Royal Night Out’.
The film is a fictional, but entertaining account, of the then Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret, who, after much pleading, are allowed to join the VE Day celebrations incognito! After some persuasion, the King gives his permission but the Queen, who does not, organises chaperones and an itinerary, much to Princess Margaret’s dismay!
Both princesses are chaperoned by a Royal Army officer who is instructed to return them to Buckingham Palace by 1am. Soon realizing the Queen's planned itinerary does not include fun, Margaret decides to slip away from her escort, followed by Elizabeth. Both princesses are then separated and have their own night-long adventure!
So, come and join us for ‘A Royal Night Out’, for a good night out!
The film will be showing at Ferring Village Hall at 6.45pm for a
prompt 7pm start. Tickets will be sold at North Ferring Co-Op and at Premier shop at South Ferring, Ticket price is £6 which includes tea, coffee or a soft drink and biscuits. Dates for the rest of the year and film information can be found on our Twitter account @FerringFilm

By 1939, the population of the parish exceeded 1500 and it has continued to grow ever since. Ed Miller, secretary of the Ferring History Group, published his book 'The Day Before Yesterday – Ferring in the 20th Century' in 2019 and his illustrated talk describes how Ferring changed from a farming community, into a select residential resort, and then a suburb of Worthing.
